I have always used the left eye to look at the viewfinder of my dslr. I am right-handed, and wear glasses (even when using the camera, I am rather stronly myopic and relatively mildy astigmatic). I am able to keep my right eye open or closed when looking with the left eye through the viewfinder (actually, I am much more capable in closing only the right eye than the left eye, like if my "eyelids muscles" are stronger on the right hand side).
By doing some simple test from the web (which, as we know, is a serious and undoubtable source of information), it turns out that I am right eyed (namely, objects move when I close the left eye, and "stay put" when I close the right eye).
And now for the question: I would like to try to use the right eye to use a "rangefinder" style viewfinder. This would let me keep the left eye open and not covered by the camera. The idea came to me after the recommendation by David Hobby in his review of the X100s. The only trouble is that... I find this very awkward (I am trying it with the X100s, too, and not with a dslr). I must "aim" for the viewfinder otherwise the eye would miss it! This never happened to me (that I can recall) with the left eye. If I make the conscious effort to place the eye towards the viewfinder, I can look just fine but I find that I have more difficulty in "looking at the whole viewfinder".
Is this a normal case of changing the long-held habit, and will go away if I stick with it? Is my interpretation of the right-eyedness test wrong ? How can I learn to shoot with "the other" eye?
P.S.: the next time that I will go to my optician I will ask him, as far as I know he never found out issues with my field of view or lateral perception, etc.
